Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs unveils 1,524-page development plan for Toronto’s waterfront

The key changes are quoting from the news release :. Waterfront Toronto has done the right thing in extending the consultations, something that I have argued for several times over the past month. This extension recognizes that it was unrealistic to expect the public, other government agencies and even Waterfront Toronto to conduct a thorough review of this document in a few rushed weeks. This is particularly true since the MIDP was seemingly designed to be as difficult to understand as possible. Sidewalk Labs had initially proposed that the initial approvals for Quayside be completed by the first quarter of Volume 3, p. This extension presents Sidewalk Labs and Waterfront Toronto with an opportunity to propose realistic deadlines and takes artificial time pressures off the table. Six months, moreover, actually fits with my back-of-the-envelope thinking about how much time a thorough consultation would require to deal with the MIDP as currently constituted.

Google's Smart-City on Toronto's Waterfront - Quayside Sidewalk Labs

Thank you all for your support! Sidewalk Labs, a Google sister company, has ambitions to build a "smart city" along a portion of Toronto's waterfront. Torontonians have been waiting for concrete details about the proposal for over a year. A recent leak by the Toronto Sta r suggests Sidewalk Labs wants to play a much larger role in developing the waterfront beyond the acre Quayside site, and may be seeking public subsidies along the way. The Blocksidewalk coalition is calling on Waterfront Toronto to release the document to the public upon receipt. This is a discussion that should not be held behind closed doors. Sidewalk Labs has selectively released details — which may or may not be part of the proposed plan — allowing them to test market project ideas without providing a substantive foundation for debate.

Volume one explains the physical changes that are proposed, and how much they might cost. Volume two describes the social and environmental responsibility angles of the plan — how the plan addresses sustainability, affordability, and improved public access to the area, while the third volume outlines how the plan might come to fruition, through leadership, consultation, and management. While Waterfront Toronto did not create the draft plan, it did consult with Sidewalk Labs in the process. Diamond also notes that while Sidewalk Labs proposes to be the main developer, a competitive and public procurement process would have to be executed to find developers to partner with Sidewalk Labs. Diamond says the board wants to know what the public likes and dislikes about the plan, concerns that arise from it, and under which conditions the plan should move forward. Since its release, there has been much public discussion of the plan, including some direct opposition.
